(Tennis) Wozniacki in a hurry
(01-14 09:33)

Caroline Wozniacki's limited preparations for the Australian Open were seldom apparent today when the former No 1 rolled to a 6-0, 6-2 win over Lourdes Dominguez Lino of Spain in 38 degrees Celsius temperatures.
Wozniacki won the first seven games and trailed briefly in the second set after having her service broken. But Wozniacki broke Dominguez Lino's service in the next game and did not drop another.
